Reading a series of obituaries from a single cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors, relatives and school mates. They attended church together and engaged in "trade" or business.  All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname at BIRTH. Women identified by a married alias only and  for whom a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries.

Coffin Sept. 3, 1871.  One child was born to them, Mrs. Rose B. Brown, also of Brookfield, Pa.  For three years she has been a great sufferer but remarkably patient, hopeful and courageous, always remembering that as the Captain of her salvation was made perfect through suffering, so must all his followers be, and so she accepted all experiences that came to her as designed by the Father to work out good in some way.  The uncomplaining and quietly victorous spirit in which she bore her great and prolonged suffering stimulated many others to larger faith and endurance.  Her last illness covered a period of four weeks and the skilled physician who attended her gave no hope of recovery,  Her husband, daughter and son-in-law and relatives assisted by kind neighbors, bestowed upon her every care and attention in their power.  Her slightest wish was gratified.  With alternating hopes and fears on the part of the family, but with calm, unwavering confidence on her part that whatever the outcome might be, all would be well at last, when with the name of a relative on her lips she ceased to breathe and departed to be forever with the Lord.  The funeral was held at the Brookfield M. E. Church of which she was a member, Monday, Oct. 25, a 2 P.M., Rev. T. Dickerson officiating, speaking words of comfort and cheer.  The beautiful floral offerings, together with the large gathering of friends and neighbors, testified to the esteem in which she was held by the community, among whom she had spent her life.  Mrs. Coffin leaves a husband, daughter and son-in-law, a sister, Mrs. A. J. Schenk. Of Jasper, N.Y. and one brother W. S. Purdy of Hornell, N.Y.  Farewell dear friends and neighbors, farewell faithful Christians, farewell dear wife, farewell dear mother and loving sister, thy life shall not be in vain, if it teaches us to emulate thy Christian graces, that we may meet beyond the dark river, which on one side washes the sands of human life, and on the other laps the footsteps of the throne of God.
